Gallery 263 is pleased to announce Tip of the Tongue, a national juried exhibition. In Tip of the Tongue, the selected artists utilize language as form and function. This group show is juried by Santiago Cucullu.
In the monotype Marker Drawer Rug, Meg Hollister remakes and reimagines creations from her childhood to digest the imperfect ways we collect, preserve, and pass on memories. The repetition of text and form in Volume 1, an artist book by Alice Dillon, mirrors how days and conversations have echoed one another since 2020. In Farfetched Future, Yolanda He Yang features a chart of audio waves from a friend who read a letter to explore how a symbol can be a multisensory agent in communication.///
The featured artists in Tip of the Tongue consider the use of language at the intersection of art and design. A wide range of mediums—such as photography, painting, drawing, mixed media, printmaking, book arts, type design, installation, collage, textiles, sculpture, and video—are all on view in this exhibition. With themes of nostalgia, culture, immigration, the overlooked, individual and collective identities, linguistics, and more present in Tip of the Tongue, viewers are encouraged to read between the lines with context and consideration.
